A 4.0 kg bowling ball rolling at a velocity of 11m/s down the bowling lane makes a head on collision with a 2.5 kg bowling pin initially at rest. After the collision, the pink has a velocity of 13.54m/s down the bowling lane. What is the final velocity of the bowling ball?
What type of Collision is this? Confirm mathematically!
4*11+0= 2.5*13.54 + 4V
solve for V.
To confirm mathmetically, set initial KE equal to final KE, and see if they equal.
